Professor: Navigating Between Old Top Hat and New Top Hat

We are excited to announce that we are launching a redesigned professor’s Top Hat course interface! 

Accessing the New Top Hat
Effective April 6th, the New Top Hat will be available for all professors to explore. Should you wish to give it a try, simply click on the red New Top Hat button in the upper right hand corner of your course interface. Your course will then be available for you in the very attractive New Top Hat!

Switching Back to Old Top Hat
Many of our Top Hat features are already available in the New Top Hat, but some will be rolled out with future releases. Should you find you’re unable to do what you’re hoping in the New Top Hat, simply click where it says Old Top Hat in your upper course header to switch back!

One of the features we are most excited about in the New Top Hat is the ability for you to embed your Top Hat questions and discussions directly between your uploaded slides! Amazing right? You can learn more about this feature here: Professor: Embedding Questions or Discussions into your Slide Presentation (New Top Hat)  It’s important to note however, that if you are to switch back to the Old Top Hat, these content items will no longer be embedded within your slide presentation as this feature isn’t available in the older version. Not really a big deal, but worth noting to avoid confusion!

Should you require further assistance with Top Hat, our Support Team is here to help! You can contact us directly by way of email (, the in app support button, the red Can’t find what you are looking for? Ask Support! banner at the bottom of this page, or calling us at 1-888-663-5491.
